Part of the collection of Victoria & Albert Museum. James Irvine was a designer of furniture and industrial products, who worked in Tokyo and Milan since 1984, latterly as a partner of Sottsass Associati. He also designed for his own consultancy with international clients. His designs were manufactured in Britain (SCP), Germany Vitra. Interlubke and others, Sweden (CBI) and Italy (Cappellini, Magis and others). Historical significance: The simplicity of design and construction, and the almost naive form of the sofabed are characteristic of furniture by. CBI, and more generally, of a minimalist sensibility in European design. Perhaps as a backlash against the perceived excesses of the. 1980s design, and with a new consciousness of the importance of environmental design, many designers and manufacturers have made a. Virtue of not “over designing” their products. Inventive and characterful as they are, products by CBI have a common quality of simplicity and. Purity, based on the philosophy of CBI which is “humanism, respect for natural materials, comfort, function, availability and the user in focus”. Disposal which characterises industrial design, but which is no longer economically or environmentally sustainable. Furthermore, CBI claims a. Basis for their rational designs and choices of materials in traditional Nordic culture and design. James Irvine conceived the sofabed for use in a small urban apartment, for daily use in a living room and occasional use as a guest bed.
